First Ever DBS Wearers Camp:

Entrance to DBS Wearer's Camp site

The Human Gait Institute invites you and your spouse/caregiver/significant other(s) to our First Ever DBS Users Camp at the Easter Seals Camp in Empire, Colorado on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, August 15, 16 and 17, 2014.  The Cost is $160.00, which includes meals and two nights lodging as well as an opportunity to enjoy the Colorado Rocky Mountains and have a camping experience in a handicapped friendly camp environment. The facility is accessible with elevators, a 1/4 mile boardwalk “nature walk”, and accessible bathrooms. At least one DBS licensed orthotist will be available and gait specialists will also be available to assist in individual or group settings.

Activities at the camp include opportunities to connect with other DBS wearers, do those darn DBS exercises together and get feedback on how you are doing them, have your brace(s) and gait evaluated to see what may need to be tweaked or improved, advanced walking education (up and down hills, stairs, uneven ground, etc.) a discussion involving your coaches and their needs and concerns, and an activity around the issues involving shoes.

In between all of that, campers can take advantage of the camp’s hiking trails, stocked fishing lake or touring area around the camp, including a visit to Georgetown, Colorado, five miles down the road or just enjoy time visiting with other DBS wearers.
